Good Morning. Did anyone elses weekend fly by? Our weekend was uneventful. Just included a lot of Olympics & movies. On friday we watched Ted. What a funny movie. I do have a confession though… I cried a little. I know that sounds ridiculous, but for any of you who saw the movie, you can’t tell me whenever Ted got kidnapped & “died” it wasn’t the saddest thing ((This is also coming from the girl who cried during The Break-up)). It’s the weirdest thing, I’ll cry during comedies, but movies like The Notebook don’t faze me one bit. I wish I had more exciting happenings from the weekend, but until Ramadan is over we won’t be leaving the house. I kinda feel like were on “house arrest” sometimes, haha. Thank gosh for the Olympics keeping us busy though :).
Now onto another week of Marvelous In My Monday hosted by the fabulous Katie @ Healthy Diva Eats. If your unfamiliar with MIMM head over to Katie’s page & read all about it :). Today I want to share another What I’m Thankful For post.
- Our vacation being booked. We leave for Santorini Island September 7th and don’t come back until September 16th. I can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are. With the hubs working six 10 hour days a week, it’ll be nice to get away for a little. I know it’s still a month away, but if any of you lovely ladies want to do a Guest Post for me, please let me know :]
- My Family. They’ve been so supportive in this crazy journey the hubs & I decided to partake in. I know it wasn’t easy for them to watch their little girl walk through the gates at the airport not knowing when they’d see me again. Thankfully with technology the way it is these days, we’ve been able to stay in contact everyday. With that, I’m beyond blessed. Even though Joshua & I haven’t lived near them for quite sometime ((due to Military life)), leaving them this time was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. You never realize until it happens, how much you truly do take family for granite from time to time. Theres no more mother-daugther, father-daughter dates, no more quick store runs, no more sitting around the table talking about life for hours, etc… Would I love to see them soon? Of course, but for now our life is here in Kuwait and I couldn’t be happier. The hubs and I are getting to experience a life that not many people have the privilege too.
- Roxy will be coming out once we get back. For any of you who are new readers, Roxy is our little Boxer/Lab. She was originally supposed to come out with me back in May, but there were some bumps in the road. We were told she needed her updated rabies shots a month prior to the flight, well here to find out she needed them 3 months prior. I was such a mess when the vet told me the news. I literally broke down in tears at the office. Oh well, she’ll be out here soon & I cannot wait. We’ve been missing our crazy girl.
- You. I never thought my blog would have so many readers in such a short time. Y’all are absolutely amazing, and so inspiring in your own way. I love hearing about everyone’s life. Seeing the laughter, smile & love you share with your family & loved ones. It always puts the biggest smile on my face.
What is making your Monday Marvelous?
